After a warm welcome in Corfu cruise port, board your air-conditioned vehicle and set off to explore the Best of Corfu on this Private, Half-Day Corfu Shore Excursion!
Your first stop on this Corfu shore excursion is the world-famous coastline of Paleokastritsa, boasting a beautiful bay with scenic hillside and waterside views. Legend has it that it is here that Odysseus - the fascinating character of The Odyssey- was washed ashore and met Nausicaa for the first time. Marvel at the overwhelming natural beauty of this spectacular coastline, swim in the emerald waters of the bay or take a boat trip to the famous caves arising out of the crystal clear waters. At the hilltop, you will find the charming 13th-century monastery of the Virgin Mary, set amid colorful gardens and offering breathtaking views of the surrounding area.
Hop back on your air-conditioned vehicle and travel to your next stop, the Unesco World Heritage Site of Corfu Town. Stroll along the scenic alleyways of the old town, admire magnificent buildings of Venetian architecture, and discover what makes this city so special - aside from all that ancient history. Stand with awe in front of the most significant landmarks of the city including the aristocratic Liston, the imposing Palace of St. Michael and St. George, the Town Hall, and the beautifully decorated St. Spyridon church, with its bell tower - the highest point in Corfu town. Pop in the many souvenir shops selling all kinds of items - from typical local souvenirs like Kumquat & extra virgin olive oil to handmade jewelry, unique handmade products and fashionable clothing. Following your exciting walk, sit down, relax and enjoy a refreshing gingerbeer - Corfu’s popular soft drink- or a sumptuous Corfiot meal while immersing in the city's vibrant atmosphere!
Filled with all these warm colours, history, tastes, and smells, meet your private driver and travel back to your cruise ship in good time for your departure. Rest assured that you are in good hands - enjoy a day of unforgettable experiences in Corfu!
